Is there a way to always allow Google Chrome to use my microphone and camera for a certain site? I like using the new Google Voice Search but whenever I click the mic button it asks if Chrome is allowed to use my mic, how can I set it to always allow?

  • I don't think that there is a way. It's a security thing. May 16 '13 at 16:00

If you are connected to the site via HTTS the grant is permanent, if you use HTTP, you are asked each time.

Probably it is a security measure to prevent users who spoof the URL of a website you have previously authorized to use the camera.

But it sucks.

  • Click the Chrome menu on the browser toolbar.
  • Select Settings.
  • Click Show advanced settings.
  • In the Privacy section, click Content settings.
  • Under Media, Click Manage exceptions to remove previously-granted permissions for specific sites.

Simple, when you click Allow, it will add it to a safe list of sites. In order to save the to the safe list, you must be logged into your google account.

I thought I was logged in, but I actually wasnt logged into the browser. Log into the browser and click allow and it will save Google in the safe list for the future.


This is not certain, google is using a lock for some distros, and you cant enable the search engine with the mic with google voice, the browser will take this like a non authorized action.

  • Hello and welcome to superuser.com. Your answer is difficult to understand. Could you rewrite it using complete and elaborating sentences? It would improve your answer greatly.
